Report Finds More Than 5000 Charter Schools — That’s a Lotta Learnin’

Back to School Tallies: Estimated Number of Public Charter Schools, 2011-2012 | National Charter School Resource Center.

The complete report is posted by the National Alliance for Public Charter Schools at http://www.publiccharter.org.  From their site, “As the public charter schools movement approaches the 20 year anniversary of the opening of the first charter school, the sector continues to grow. Over 500 new public charter schools opened their doors for the 2011-2012 school year. There are now approximately 5,600 public charter schools. The 7 percent growth in charter schools is a demonstration of parents’ demand for high quality educational options.”
